“Will and Grace”, Vice-President Pence, and the Continued Attack on Christian Americans – A KJ Sunday Morning Reflection
“The United States cannot and should not discriminate on the basis of religion. The free exercise of religion is at the very heart of our constitutional guarantee for all persons of this country.” – Vice-President Mike Pence
FoxNews.com reports that
NBC’s “Will & Grace” took another shot at conservatives on Thursday night, using exaggerated stereotypes to portray the right as homophobic with not-so-subtle jabs at Vice President Mike Pence.
Sean Hayes’ character, Jack, explained to Eric McCormack’s Will that he lost touch with his son because, “He moved to Texas, married someone super conservative, and he didn’t even invite me to his wedding.”
Upon realizing that he has a grandson in Texas, Will encouraged Jack to bond with him but Sean Hayes’ character didn’t exactly love the idea.
“How am I supposed to connect with a kid from Texas? I can’t fish or hunt or tell a woman what to do with her fetus,” he replied.
However, it turns out that Jack might have something in common with his grandson after all, as he is suspected to be gay. He is sent to a mock gay conversion camp called “Straighten Arrow,” where they plan to “pray away the gay,” complete with a poster of Vice President Pence.
The Media Research Center’s TV reporter Amelia Hamilton wrote that while conversion therapy is often tied to Pence, “the accusations have just never stuck, except in liberals’ minds.”
“Anything to keep pushing an oft-debunked myth, I suppose, right?” Hamilton wrote. “Debunked myths, conservative stereotypes, and overwrought situations? It looks like ‘Will & Grace’ knows they’re not going to win anybody over by being honest.”
Last month, the premiere episode of NBC’s reincarnated “Will & Grace” was essentially a 30-minute anti-Trump infomercial. It referred to First Lady Melania Trump as a “hostage,” portrayed Midwesterners as people who didn’t eat vegetables until Michelle Obama came along and featured Debra Messing’s character, Grace, complaining about the results of last year’s presidential election. People magazine even published a list of all the times the show ripped Trump.
While “Will & Grace” continues to mock conservatives, the creators of the show have actually admitted that they don’t see eye to eye with the man who has turned CNN into a left-leaning network. Creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick told The Hollywood Reporter they only agreed to a reunion because former NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker isn’t involved anymore, as he is now the president of the liberal CNN.
I wrote last month about the premiere of the “retooled” “Will and Grace”, a sitcom that actually used to be funny.
The writers and producers of the show had seemingly dedicated this reboot to a sustained attack against average folks like myself, who, as described by the “cool” word of the Millennials, self-identify as Christian Americans.
Or, to describe us in a different light, average Americans living in America’s Heartland between the coasts, whom Hillary Clinton less than lovingly described as “Deplorables”.
The fact of the matter is, no matter how some seek to restrict the Religious Liberty of Christian Americans, the death of Christianity in America has been greatly exaggerated.
“Organized Religion”, a term usually spoken in derision by those seeking to somehow impugn the generations-old practice of Christian Americans to be a member of and attend the weekly worship service of the denomination and church building of their choice, is being attacked constantly by Atheists, Liberals, and Progressives (but, I repeat myself) to further degrade the spiritual backbone of the “Shining City Upon a Hill”, as President Ronald Reagan referred to our country.
For what now seems like an eternity, those on the left side of Political Aisle, have focused their attention on “radically changing” America.
They soon realized that they simply could not do it through popular culture and educational indoctrination, inundating America’s children with both overt and subliminal imaging designed to countermand the Traditional American Values that they were being raised with, in normal American Households, out here in “Flyover Country”, otherwise known as America’s Heartland…or “the Red States”.
Modern Liberals soon figured out that the way to program Americans into believing that “all paths lead to God” and that cradle-to-grave Nanny-State Government were the new American Standards for living our daily lives, was to turn Christian American Houses of Worship away from being instructors of the Word of God and a sanctuary in which to worship Our Creator, to, instead, being purveyors of the joys of Popular Culture. Wednesday Night Bible Studies were soon replaced by Yoga Classes and Encounter Groups. Religious Leaders were soon quoting philosophy, instead of the Bible in their Sunday Morning Sermons.
And, instead of taking a stand against those things of the world which were directly opposed to what is found in God’s Word, these “new, enlightened” churches started standing up for the “right” of a woman to have her baby prematurely yanked out of her womb with a set of tongs, standing up for the right of Adam to “marry” Steve, when the Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman, and standing up for the equality of all faiths, when the Son of God firmly states, in John 14:6, that
I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
The push to fill their pews and their coffers and to attract new members without offending their popular culture-influenced “sensibilities”, has seemingly the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ in second place behind “Do what you want to do. Would you like to come on in and hang out for a while”?
So, is Christianity in America going to “fade away”?
Not any time soon.
Being filled with human beings, churches have made a lot of mistakes, However, they have also done a lot of good in the name of the Lord.
For example, the church I attend, houses a Food Pantry, operated in co-operation with other churches in our area, which feeds 2,000 people per month, counseling them, and getting them the assistance that they need.
Churches today have to walk a fine line.
The spiritual battle the influence of American Popular Culture and those seeking the Will of God in their lives, takes all the strength…and prayer, that Christians can muster.
Modern sitcoms, such as “Will and Grace” are written by Liberals, and are thus infused with their beliefs as to what is “Normal”, moral, and ethical. And, as seen by how rapidly these programs appear and disappear from national television, their views reflect those of a minority of America’s population.
Modern Liberals seem to have great difficulty comprehending the role which Our Creator, the God of Abraham, played and plays in this Grand Experiment, known as the United States of America.
Why have Liberals ratcheted up their anti-Christian Vitriol and Negativity since January 21, 2009?
Why are they so focused on removing America’s Christian Heritage?
Well, as is usually my wont, I have been doing some “reckoning” about this.
It seems to this ol’ Southern Boy, living here in the Heartland, that America’s Christian Heritage and the very real fact of His influence in building and shaping America’s growth into the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth, not only stifles and interferes with Modern Liberals’ “anything goes”, “share the wealth”, “hive-mind”, “man is his own god” Political Ideology, but the reality of God’s very existence, somewhere deep in their miserable, bitter psyches, scares the mess out of them.
The election of Donald J. Trump as President on November 16, 2016 exacerbated Modern American Liberals anti-Christian Psychosis.
The problem for them is, they are still hopelessly outnumbered.
According to a Pew Forum Survey, more than 13 million Americans are self-described atheists and agnostics, comprising less than 6% of the U.S. public.
I have never understood Atheists, especially the so-called activists among them.
Our Constitution provides for Freedom of Religion.
According to the Supreme Court, in their Ruling abolishing School Prayer, Atheism is a religion, which the Americans who embrace this nihilism are free to practice.
So, why the continuous full-blown attack on the Faith which our Founding Fathers wrote so eloquently about, and which has sustained this “shining city on a hill” through times of internal and external strife?
In other words, why are activist Atheists (and Progressives) so intent to either limit or completely eliminate Christianity’s influence on everyday American Life, as exhibited by the continued attacks on the “Will and Grace” Program?
Why don’t they attack the political/religious ideology of Islam with the same fervor?
The answer to this question is simple: Cowards will always tell you whom they are afraid of. They will avoid them, like one avoids a child with Chicken Pox.
Additionally, they expect Christians to allow them to take control by “turning the other cheek.”
Evidently, they never read the scriptures which describe Jesus running the “money lenders” out of the temple, overturning tables, and expressing his righteous indignation in a way in which no one could mistake it for anything else.
Or, perhaps, it’s the overwhelming overestimation of their own intelligence, which results from ignoring the influence of the God of Abraham in their life.
So, what drives them in this “Unholy Crusade”?
Bitterness, emptiness, and an unfulfilled longing in their soul which they cannot put a finger on, is the only explanation.
Otherwise, why would they fight so hard against the influence of and worship of Someone they don’t personally believe in?
This reboot of “Will and Grace” will, sooner than later, be cancelled.
The Faith of Our Fathers will remain.
Until He Comes,
